Researchers Succeed in Transferring Paradoxical Effect to Laser System

Researchers Succeed in Transferring Paradoxical Effect to Laser System

What started out as a mathematical oddity, has now become a new kind of laser technology. Two years ago, physicists at TU Wien predicted a paradoxical laser effect: Under certain conditions, a laser can be switched on not by supplying it with more energy, but by taking energy away from the laser. First experimental signatures of this effect were recently reported at TU Wien. [More]
